Beat by Bárbara Colio | 2018

As part of The Anglo Mexico Foundation and British Council Mexico's joint 75th anniversary, Anglo Arts and the British Council  co-produced Bárbara Colio's Beat with a cast from the Compañia Nacional de Teatro and a director from the Royal Court. The play opened at the Festival del Centro Histórico in March 2018 and then had a full season run at the Compañia Nacional in September. 
It is not only about living. It is about feeling alive, beating. Heart and Vladimir's bodies are weakened and old, but their desires and dreams beat as never before. Two forgotten elderly people in a care home plan an audacious escape. At this point, they have nothing to lose.
